When Kaspersky Small Office Security runs together with some full-screen applications, the following issues may occur:

  • Application performance becomes degraded due to lack of system resources
  • Notification windows of Kaspersky Small Office Security distract the user

To avoid changing the settings of Kaspersky Small Office Security manually every time you switch to full-screen mode, you can use Focused Work Mode. If Focused Work Mode is being used and you are working with an application in full-screen mode, Kaspersky Small Office Security does not run scan and update tasks and does not display notifications.

To turn on Focused Work Mode:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click Settings button in the lower part of the main window.

    This opens the Settings window.

  3. Go to Performance settingsPC performance optimization.
  4. Select the Focused Work Mode check box.

As long as the Focused Work Mode or Do Not Disturb mode is enabled, you will also not see notifications from Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection and Kaspersky Password Manager applications installed on the same device.
